Calling for Guest Voices! | Preview of the Clue Series
For those hearing this, I’ll be taking a break until sometime in August -- I’m not sure when that’ll be yet but it depends on you, actually. I’m putting together a series and I want to get as much audience participation as I can, so if you’re hearing this episode, there is still time to submit something for the series. If you’re like me, you LOVE the 1985 movie Clue. And, as a lover of the film, I look for any opportunity to quote the movie in everyday conversation. So, what I’m asking from you is if you have a favorite quote, or just enjoy quoting the movie, send me a clip for my future series. And, if you’re a fan of mysteries, you’ve probably figured out the series has something to do with Clue. So, the sooner I get a number of different clips from people to play, the sooner The Story Behind can return. You can send an .mp3 file, .wav file or even a recording from whatever you use on your phone for voice memos to TheStoryBehindPod@gmail.com. Got questions? Contact me on Twitter | Facebook | Instagram or by going to The Story Behind Contact Page.
